Pillars, 38pts, Third place

Joe Tully, Wicklow, Ireland Canon EOS 20D, 18-55mm, 1/13sec at f/5.6, ISO 400 Joe, who works in a picture-framing and D&P shop, says, ‘This was shot on my way back to the airport after a long weekend in Normandy, France. I had no tripod, so when I saw this scene I had to support the camera against one of the pillars.’ Joe was drawn to the candles in the bottom left and the way the light traced patterns on the floor. Judges say 'What’s not to love about this image? Joe’s duotone boasts incredible depth and symmetry, but the real star is the haunting light he has captured through the cathedral windows and from the candles. '
